Are you a new Christian or seeking truth about God? Let us give you the tools and support you need to grow in your faith. You can join a Faith Group, a Bible Study or read a book to help learn more about what it means to be a Christian.
Pastor Richard recommends the book "New Christian's Handbook" by Max Anders. "I've used Max Anders' book for discipleship for years," says Richard. "It's written in an easy-to-follow, simple-to-digest, short-chapter style that covers exactly what every Christian needs to know."
Copies of "New Christian's Handbook" are available for FREE at the Welcome Center located in the church lobby. Stop by and ask for yours.
The best way to read the book is with a friend who has been a believer longer than you. Read a few chapters and schedule a weekly or every-other-week get-together to discuss what you're learning and ask your questions. This is the type of discipleship the Bible recommends.
